In the shooting world, the idea of staging some sort of camera at a target's location and then being able to view an image of the target from the shooter's position is not a new one. A handful of companies market target cameras to this end, some that are even capable of transmitting over extreme distances. It's easy for many of these setups to become cumbersome when dealing with all the wiring, cameras, batteries, stands, screens, transmitters and receivers. Bullseye Camera Systems takes a leap forward with the AmmoCam Long Range Edition by providing a target camera system that is very compact and easy to use yet still able to transmit up to a mile. Furthermore, Bullseye offers the AmmoCam in a package that is priced to beat similar offerings by the competition. Read More...

The HD model is 1280x720. So the picture is much clearer, but the real bonus is being able to zoom in more and retain quality.

Hi, I'm a new member but long time lurker/learner.

A group of friends and I are in the process of researching and reviewing target cameras and appreciate your review and information. I have a couple of questions that you might be able to answer, if not I can just call the company but prefer to ask someone that used the unit "from scratch".

Firstly, my/our intended usage spans the spectrum from 100yrd sight-in and load development testing, 300-400yd ladder testing for new rifle load combinations and finally long range target validation on steel plates out to moderate hunting distances (1k and closer).

The two primary questions I have are as follows:

1) In the case of ladder testing, we often use pretty large cardboard target frames and target paper. Maybe 4' x 4' or slightly larger to ensure each round is captured. All of the examples I see seem to be relatively small targets and the camera is "zoomed in" to the target. Do you foresee any challenges with being able to "pan out" to a larger target surface and still be able to see impacts, and most importantly to ladder tests, the order of shots?

2) In the case of steel targets, if you are shooting on a windy day and miss the steel plate, is there a way to "play back" the shot so that the shooter might be able to make a windage correction? The goal is to use this product instead of only shooting with a spotter and I'm wondering if there is a way to track the dust puff or playback the shot. It didn't sound like the live video feature offered that.

Anyway, thanks in advance for any insight you might have on these specific scenarios. Maybe we are different from other shooters but it seems like these features would be useful to us at least.

Hi Sir! I'm from Europe and long time shooter. just discovered this site where i registered. About Bullseyes users here, all have been disgutted by poor performances. unable to spot clearlt .22 holes in black zones of targets as this the discriminating factors. the official importer of Bullseyes stopped selling them. the Swiss put them on the shelves. we know a guy in the USA that just started to sell for a few bucks a nice promising soft named Handispotter working with more than 1600 models of cams. presently only available for Android Tablets or smartphone. will be regurlarly updated. we tested it with our own design of high resolution cam. we can spot clearly .22 impacts at 60ft from any targets any colour. this bring quite a safety marging for the outfit. You'll find Handispotter on Google playstore/ Made by Robert Chou. He is pro programmer with award winning softs. here are some picts of target shot from my tablet screen. no distance under 18m= 54ft.
have a look at:
